MYPINPAD announces today that Colin Greene has been appointed Licentia Group and MYPINPAD CEO, to spearhead the global deployment of its PCI-certified PIN on Mobile solution and rapidly emerging contactless on smart device technology.

Colin arrives with over 30 years’ experience in executive leadership roles within technology giants such as NCR, Intel, and Dell. For the past 13 years, Colin worked at Apple, where he most recently led the US channel retail business. Colin brings to the role a wealth of experience in retail leadership, country management, strategic planning, and the introduction of category defining technologies to markets across Europe, Asia and the US.

MYPINPAD, a Licentia Group company, is industry recognised as the global leader in software-based PIN entry on smartphones and tablets, and contactless payments on Android platforms. MYPINPAD’s transformational technology will see point-of-sale terminals and PIN entry mPOS devices replaced by iOS and Android smartphones and tablets running secure payment software. This technology will dramatically reduce cost and complexity throughout the face-to-face payment value-chain, while enabling customers to leverage the data-rich environment of connected smart devices and their vast improvement in user experience.

Colin will also oversee the ongoing expansion of MYHSM, another Licentia company which offers payment Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) as-a-service. As with MYPINPAD, MYHSM removes the need for customers to invest in expensive, single-use hardware to process payments.

Colin commented on his appointment“I’m truly honoured to have been appointed Licentia Group and MYPINPAD CEO. My career so far has been dominated by a passion for technology and the positive impact of smart devices on people’s everyday lives. We now have the opportunity to take that customer experience to the next level with MYPINPAD, and to transform the global face-to-face payments ecosystem. The MYPINPAD team possesses unequalled innovation and payments technology expertise to deliver on that promise. I cannot wait to get started.” 

Phil King, MYPINPAD Chairman, said: “Colin’s appointment is a pivotal moment for the Licentia Group and MYPINPAD. His experience is perfectly aligned with our ambitions. I can think of no better person to head up our rapidly expanding business. Together we will build on our position as the global leader in this extremely specialised area, mass-deploy our technology, transform everyday phones and tablets into secure payment terminals and change payments acceptance forever.”
